I have long been convinced the wedding at Cana was in fact the marriage of Jesus.

Not saying you are wrong, but knowing he would be put to death I think he would have been awfully reluctant to put a wife through that ordeal.

So he chose the beginning of his three years of ministry which would culminate in his brutal slaying to get married?

That’s ridiculous.

One: And He spent His time at His own wedding running errands for his mother? After he's said to her, "How is this (lack of wedding wine) a concern to you or to me?" Please. It was not His wedding.

Two: Several times in other parts of the N.T. they mention His family, as known to them, and they spell it out as: his mother, father, brothers, sisters (possibly cousins.) No mention of wife or kids.

Three: When Jesus died, he was concerned about His mother being alone, and entrusts her to his disciple John. If He were married, wouldn't He be concerned about his mother AND WIFE being alone, and needing someone to take them into their home?

Four: if Jesus had kids --- blood lines and genealogies being as intensely important as they were, in those days - wouldn't there at least be some mention, let alone controversy, about whether they would His successors? If course there would be discussion of it --- if he left any descendants. But He didn't, so there wasn't.

I rest my case.
